Gay marriage and your idiocy
The issue of gay marriage has been around for a while. The argument from the religious side is that marriage is sacred and should be between a man and a woman because that is what God approves of. Fair enough. However, If this is what you believe, I raise the following questions: 1: Are you against gay and lesbian couples getting married, or are you against them using the term marriage? The term...
Politics and your idiocy
As a lot of you may know, I’ve been obsessed with politics ever since this election season began. I’ve been following it very closely, as have millions of others. The race, of course, is very close. First, one is ahead, the next week the other one is. But there is one thing that always burns my ass; the undecided voters.If you’re an undecided voter, don’t even bother...
The Best Song In The World
Untitled 8 by Sigur Ros
I just found this little gem. Install this preference pane and it will give you access to a countless list of hidden preferences in OS X. Disclaimer: It only works on OS X 10.5 and if you don’t know what you’re doing it may break some stuff.
For Your Ears Only: Vol. 1

After all of the work-arounds for getting my TV to display my Front Row seamlessly, I’ve been doing some thinking. Why the hell do companies blatantly refuse to give us all the possible features in products they sell us? Why do I have to go into the command line to do something that should be simple? I want to rent HD movies, not just from Apple TV. Not only that, I want to rent things from...
Home Tech Dilemma Solution!
Finally! I have found the answer! I can now run Front Row 2.0 on my secondary display forever without touching my Mac. If you’re wondering how this is done, read on. It will sound a little intimidating, but it really isn’t bad. It’ll take you about 2 minutes. 1: Download the “displays info” utility from RapidShare. Link 2: Connect secondary display and turn it on. ...
Home Tech Dilemma Pt. 2
In my quest to find a permanent solution to running Front Row 2.0 on my HDTV without touching my Mac I found a command line solution that sounds like it will work. Tomorrow I will post my results as well as a walkthrough if it works. However, this brings me to my second dilemma. The great thing about the Apple TV is that you can have it download your TV shows as soon as they’re released....
Home Tech Dilemma
We’ve finally settled into our new place. Being a tech geek I’m always looking to improve our movie-watching experience, but also being a cheap bastard I’m always looking to do it for free. My current set-up: 54” HDTV, Mac Pro. The way that the new place is set up has the Mac Pro directly behind the TV. I know it sounds weird, just picture the TV in the middle of the...
So I spent the better half of the day on Sunday playing Spore. I have to say that I’m very impressed. I really didn’t know what to expect or how they would be able to compress billions of years of evolution into one game, but they’ve done it. As most people know, you begin as a one-celled organism. From the get-go you get to choose what you want to be; herbivore or carnivore. I...
On a Sunday
So the apartment is looking better and better every day. We have a ton of boxes that are now half full, so we’re focusing on getting those emptied out. I found a black bag today that was tied up in a knot so I looked inside to see what treasures lurked inside. I proceeded to find two huge zip-lock bags with nothing but snow white mold inside… I almost puked. The bag had been in storage...
Google's Floating Server Farm →
Google really is everywhere now. They’re on every computer in the world, they’ve got satellites in space, and now they’re patenting technology to have their servers floating in the middle of the ocean and power themselves with the ocean’s waves. I guess they ran out of room in California…
Wilmington, NC Kills Analog →
Finally, a new dawn has arrived. The excrement that is analog television is leaving our cruel world, with Wilmington, NC taking setting an example for the rest of us. Come February next year, however, everyone will have to make the switch. For those stubborn enough (or those who can’t afford an HDTV) will be given $40 coupons toward analog/digital converters. I honestly can’t wait.
Cindy McCain: 'Offended'
This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard anyone say… Straight from CNN: Cindy McCain told an interviewer that she was “offended by Barack Obama” and other Democrats who have been hammering her husband John McCain for being unable to immediately answer a question about how many homes he owns. “I’m offended by Barack Obama saying that about my...
